Averaging about two signatures a minute. PBS will be agenda item #1 in the new Congress at this rate.

Cant hurt! Does getting rid of NPR mean that Mara Liasson will no longer be on the Fox All Stars? That would be a bonus!

The liberal scum at NPR and PBS are continuing to demonize the GOP.

They don't think the Republicans and W will dare defund the taxpayer subsidized DNC propaganda machine.

Heres to hoping that they are wrong.

I contend that we NOT sign the petition. Even though both are lefties, it helps to know what the enemy is thinking. Remember the old adage, "Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer."

Libertina, thanks for the ping. Now signed -- PBS never really quite lived up to its promise. It's become so bad I *never* tune into the Seattle affiliate (not that the TV is on much anyways...), whatever its call is.

I hate, despise, and disdain PBS/NPR, so I wish you good luck. Just check out my home page However, signing a petition will do little other than make you feel better.

Pick up your phone and call (or write 'em) your congress critter if you want to be effective! One hundred Republicans voted to fund Public Broadcasting. Is your congress critter one?

No way, no how. It's a wasted effort, with all due respect. Drastic things don't happen in this country, and there are FReepers who'll tell you that's good and that's how the Founding Fathers wanted it. This battle has been fought before and has been lost. I think a better strategy would be to infiltrate it (them?) and take it (them?) over. It worked for the commies, it oughta work for us!

Thanks for this. I'll send this link to as many like-minded folks as possible, and will also help you keep this thread bumped here on FR.

When and how will this get to Congress and President Bush?

Potluck party 1/04/2003? Oops -- I haven't been keeping up on the local thread, if that's where it was mentioned. With all the travel the goodwife & I have had to suffer this month (she flies home tomorrow; I fly on Monday...), I am well behind on the various forums. Tell me more (privately...)?

Thanks for posting this! I was #50, and forwarded the link to about 20 of my conservative friends.

It's about time NPR and PBS survive on their own merits, (which they are incapable of) instead of extorting public tax money to exist.

Imagine....no liberals. What a wonderful world it could be. Let's Roll!

Yes he cried, down with PBS as he sat watching four Brit comedies in a row (Saturday night has a great lineup of Wisconsin Public TV !). And don't forget Red Green! Actually PBS, with all the leftist propaganda, is still miles ahead of the big three commercial networks. Why condemn PBS when the Big Three, which are COMMERCIAL!! networks, are liberally-slanted? Sorry, those lefties at PBS are good at programming shows that are not political. The Big Three lineup is garbage, political or otherwise.

Drastic things don't happen in this country, and there are FReepers who'll tell you that's good and that's how the Founding Fathers wanted it

T. Jefferson To Abigail Adams Paris, Feb. 22, 1787
DEAR MADAM,

-- I am to acknolege the honor of your letter of Jan. 29. and of the papers you were so good as to send me. They were the latest I had seen or have yet seen. They left off too in a critical moment; just at the point where the Malcontents make their submission on condition of pardon, and before the answer of government was known. I hope they pardoned them. The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the Atmosphere.

From Thomas Jefferson to William Smith
Paris, November 13, 1787

There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century & a half for each state. What country before ever existed a century & a half without a rebellion? & what country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. It is it's natural manure.

The Freepers that think as you say, and sadly they are MANY, are not worth warm spit. They are worthless. Ignore the girly men.

The science programs and opera can survive on other commercial networks. The science programs can be shown on Discovery and other networks and the opera can be shown on Bravo and any other network that wants it.

I'd submit that CBSNBCABCNN and print media are far more dangerous.

The number of people that aren't leftist, are too stupid to realize that NPR/PBS is a socialist organization AND intelligent enough to intentionally find an NPR broadcast could gather in your living room.
